Thank you for your help,
I 've followed your advice so I used mig weathering.
I've sprayed with my airbrush the light green. I did not let to much time to dry. With a sponge ( and a drop of white spririt), I lightly touch the paint . And when it was totally dry, I apply the dark green with a small sponge.
As you can see on photos , I don't think Ineed to add more

Hello,
It was time to use weathering method on deck. It's not finished yet, I need to add some light green patch on deck's path.
In the same time I've tried to give "months at sea" on the wheelhouse.
More photos are coming, normally the sea trials..

Excellent use of weathering techniques on both the hull and the decks.
Can't wait to see the next instalment. :-))

Good evening,
The tries are in halftone. The tank filling and the smoke generator work very well. The problem comes from the propulsion which is not rather fast. The reduction is of 1:6, with a rotation of 1000 rpm for a small 30 mm propeller. So  I am going to change the engine which will be reduced by a report of 1:2.5.If ever it is not sufficient. I think of passing of 6v in 12v.It's a pity but I don't know what to do of other one.The bow propeller does not turn either rather fast. I am also going to increase the tension.I thought that he remained in me only the mast to be ended, but I shall have to redo a little of mechanics.s are

Very nice model!  :-))
I think 1:6 reduction is too much for a 30mm prop. I dont now which motor you use but I would go to direct drive.

Hello everybody,
I 'm still working on weathering effect to represent the pathway on deck. I add a light green powder. Before that, I've completed the two mast. They are usefull to carry pipes in order to filling another tanker. The wheelhouse is finished.  Next days, I ll do another trials with a new reducted motor.

Your idea to use a lighter green rather than lightening with white is a sound idea.

A splendid representation of a tanker Midori. Don't overdo the motor size, you don't want to turn it into a power boat :embarrassed:

Hello,
Thank you for your comments, it means i'm on the good way.
I post the last Apache 1 trials at "sea". It took place on a september morning without any wind. The motor reduction with a rate 1:2.5 is a good choice. It can sails about 2 hours with a medium speed. I will withdraw lead at the bottom, too much heavy.
The model is nearly completed
